HC Deb 16 November 1908 vol 196 c890

I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether he will arrange an early day on which to proceed with the Irish Constabulary Bill, in view of the extra strain placed on the force in coping with the increase of agrarian crime in many districts of the South and West.


Having regard to the recommendations made, so far back as the year 1901, by the Committee presided over by Sir Howard Vincent, and to the undertakings given by the Government in the matter, it is intended to proceed with the financial Resolution in Committee upon the Constabulary (Ireland) Bill at the earliest possible date.
